13. After you have the blade squared to the fence, tighten the lock nut that
holds the Positive Stop Adjustment Screw.
14. Rotate the saw blade arm back to 0 ° on the bevel scale, then tighten the
Bevel Lock Handle, Repeat steps 9 through 12 for 45 ° stop.
Your saw has two scale pointers. One is on the Bevel scale and one is on the Miter
scale. After any blade squaring adjustments are made, it may be necessary to
loosen the screws that hold the clear red pointers and adjust them back to 0 °.
THROAT PLATE SLOT
For your convenience the slot in the zero clearance throat plate has been pre-cut at the
factory to allow complete blade clearance at any angle between 0 ° and 45".
PIVOT ADJUSTMENTS
NOTE: These adjustments were made at the factory and
under normal cimumstances do not require readjustment.
Travel Pivot Adjustment
Your saw arm should rise completely to the up position by itself.
To avoid risk of personal injury, if your saw arm does not rise by
itself or if there is play in the pivot joints, have your saw serviced
at a Sears Service Center before using.
Bevel Pivot Adjustment
Your compound miter saw arm should bevel easily by loosening the bevel lock knob
and tilting the saw arm to the left.
To avoid risk of personal injury, if movement
is tight or if there is play in
the pivot, have your saw serviced at a Sears Service Center before using
DEPTH STOP
The depth stop limitsthe downward travel of the blade. It allows the blade to go below the
miter table enough to maintain full cutting capacities. The depth stop positions the blade
1/4-inch from the miter table support.
NOTE: The miter table support is located inside the miter table.
The depth stop is factory set to provide maximum cutting capacity for the 10-inch blade
included with your saw. Therefore the blade included with your saw should never need
adjustments.
However, when the diameter of the blade has been reduced due to sharpening, it may
become necessary to adjust the depth stop in order to provide the maximum cutting capacity.
